The Nike Kyrie 5 Gets an ‘All-Star’ Makeover


Man, the colorways for this year’s NBA All-Star festivities are really something.

Recently, WearTesters reported on a very captivating Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 ‘All-Star’ colorway. Now, Nike is planning to put the same type of design onto the Kyrie 5.

This build is different from previous releases of the Kyrie 5 in that the upper isn’t engineered mesh. This time around, it appears that the upper has synthetic materials and the Flytrap overlay is now translucent, rather than the solid material found on other Kyrie 5 colorways.

Lastly, the outsole is translucent as well which may cause problems as, for whatever reason, translucent outsoles don’t stick to the floor quite as well as solid rubber options. At any rate, check out Nightwing2303 and Stanley T.’s performance review on the Nike Kyrie 5 for more information on how it performed on-court.

Also, take a look at the Nike Kyrie 5 deconstructed for an in-depth look at the tech used.

According to Foot Locker’s release calendar, the Nike Kyrie 5 ‘Multi’ is supposed to release on February 16. Whether or not these are the same remains to be seen but in any case, they will be $130.

Are you going to cop these or the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2? Which one is more appealing to you? Tell us what your thoughts are on these in the comment section below.

  1. It looks like they simplified the lacing. The lateral side looks like it’s just one loop of flywire, as opposed to one loop passing through another…unless I’m just not seeing it.

  2. You’re right I think that’s exactly what they did. This is wack. I like how the synthetic upper looks, that backwards huge swoosh is nice
